Rick Ross To Pay DJ $300,000
The larger-than-life rapper finally settles two year 'beef'...
Rick Ross and DJ Vlad have finally settled their ‘beef’ after two long years in court, following what Vlad has called a "brutal attack" at the 2008 Ozone Awards.
DJ Vlad originally filed a $4 million suit against Ross after suffering facial fractures, a corneal abrasion and several stitches after he and Ross had met in Houston, Texas.
But dispite his claim - for $2 million in compensation and another $2 million in punitive damages - he was awarded a mere $300,000.
Rick Ross told MTV.com: "I've been fighting a 4 million lawsuit for the last two years, and my defense was a success. I gotta shout out Xavier Donaldson, my attorney. Whenever an artist or anybody is put in a position such as a lawsuit of this capacity, so much evidence, tapes etcetera, etcetera. And the media can walk out of the courtroom giving the plaintiff less than 10 percent of what they requested, I consider my defense a success. God bless America."
